Too Close For Comfort


Lyrics

"Too Close For Comfort"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

We've never met but we've seen each other around

You remember me whether you admit it or not

I know you do, from the look each time on your face

I know that look when I see it, and from you I see it a lot


And now by chance, here we are again

Neither one knows the right thing to say

And now by chance, we’re together again

The closer we get, the more nervous and afraid, now


Too close for comfort, do you wish that I was yours? whoa

Too close for comfort, do you wanna get even more? whoa

Too close for comfort, are you gonna make the first move?  whoa

Too close for comfort, are you thinkin’ what I’m thinkin’ too?  whoa, whoa


I've seen the way you've undressed me with your eyes

Can't take them off me, even though you try to look away

I've seen your sheepish grin, and the way you can't hold it back

You may not think I notice, but it makes my day


And now by chance, here we are again

Neither one knows the right thing to say

And now by chance, we’re together again

The closer we get, the more nervous and afraid, now


Too close for comfort, do you wish that I was yours? whoa

Too close for comfort, do you wanna get even more? whoa

Too close for comfort, are you gonna make the first move?  whoa

Too close for comfort, are you thinkin’ what I’m thinkin’ too?  whoa, whoa


Stuck together on an elevator

We smiled at each other and with an angel above my head

Think I'm in love again

Walking past each other on the sidewalk

We smiled at each other and with the devil above my head

I think I want you in bed

Running into each other down at the store

I sold my soul so I could see you some more

I only want more

You're the devil and I want you

You turned me into the devil too


And now by chance, here we are again

Neither one knows the right thing to say

And now by chance, we’re together again

The closer we get, the more nervous and afraid, now


Too close for comfort, do you wish that I was yours? whoa

Too close for comfort, do you wanna get even more? whoa

Too close for comfort, are you gonna make the first move?  whoa

Too close for comfort, are you thinkin’ what I’m thinkin’ too?  whoa, whoa


Too close for comfort, do you wish that you could have me, whoa

Too close for comfort, do you wanna reach out and grab me, whoa

Too close for comfort, all I need is a wink of the eye, whoa

Too close for comfort, if you could only read my mind, whoa, whoa

Brief Description

This I wrote after I found myself stuck on an elevator with an attractive woman who was seriously and obviously checking me out.  It's a rare occurrence, me being old and fat and all, so it threw me off guard, but this was undeniably noticeable and not something I misread.  The kind of thing that later makes your mind wander a bit - it can't be helped.  Being the happily married man that I am, I of course took no action whatsoever with the woman other than write this song - from the perspective of some other guy (not me, of course) experiencing the same thing I did in a different way, where the character's imagination ran a little more wild.
